Monitoring IBM Cloud DNS

Monitoring your IBM Cloud DNS records automatically is made easy with ZoneWatcher. After you've added your account credentials, we will automatically import all of your domains and begin monitoring them for changes.

Generating your IBM Cloud API Token

To get started adding your IBM Cloud account, you'll first want to generate a new API token on IBM Cloud dashboard. We use this token to automatically fetch the domains and associated DNS records. We recommend creating a new IAM user limited to the Read-Only permissions for the DNS service.

IBM Cloud API Token Generation

Creating your IBM Cloud DNS Provider

Once you've retrieved your API token, you can create your new IBM Cloud DNS provider on ZoneWatcher by giving it a descriptive name and pasting the Secret into the API token field. You'll also need to copy the Instance ID from IBM Cloud into the Instance ID field.
